Turkey - N.Macedonia
Macedonians are leaders in Group 3. They have five points, as do the second-placed Iceland. It is clear these two national teams will secure the promotion spots for the upcoming European championship. Macedonians are huge favorites in this match, but I think Turkey are able to cover the handicap, meaning they won t lose with more than three goals. Just to mention, Turkey lost 27:31 in the reverse fixture in Bitola. I am sure they could do better at home. This match will be played in Eskisehir and I expect the home fans to give maximal support to their players. However, the key reason for my pick is connect with the guests. Coach Danilo Brestovac has quality and experienced players, but he is missing the genuine playmaker since Filip Mirkulovski retired from the national team. The defeat at Greece was painful and showed the weaknesses on that position.
